Effect of IBA concentration on the production of coratina olive plant

Ayesha Ameen, Jalil Ahmad, Shahid Raza


The effect of different concentrations of indole butyric acid (IBA) at 4g/L and 0.12/31.2 ml hardwood and semi hardwood cuttings of coratina olive was observed. Cuttings were taken in the month of February from coratina plant and dipped for 10 seconds in the required IBA solutions. The highest survival percentage, shoot formation, number of roots formation was maximum in 4g/L treated hardwood cuttings. The maximum numbers of branches were observed in hardwood cuttings as compared to softwood cuttings. It was concluded that either type of olive cutting treated with IBA solution 4g/L showed best results to propagate coratina olive.
